Neda Saleh is a California Licensed Acupuncturist, Nationally Certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, Certified Yoga Instructor, and founder of Evoke Acupuncture.
Neda is passionate about integrating Eastern and Western Medicine. She analyzes every condition to uncover the root cause of disease and finds the most applicable solutions. Her specialties include:
- Women’s Health
- Stress, Depression, Anxiety
Neda’s interest in medicine began at a young age. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Public Health from UC Berkeley. With a vision of attending medical school, she gained experience while working as a medical assistant and clinic coordinator at Mar Monte Community Clinic in San Jose. There she discovered areas in which western medical practices were unable to provide long-lasting solutions for patients. This led her to pursue further education in traditional healing methods.
Four years later, Neda graduated from Five Branches University with a Master in Traditional Chinese Medicine. While in school, she traveled to China for additional training in Internal Medicine at Zhejiang University. She also completed her Yoga Teacher Training and taught yoga, meditation, and qi gong classes that emphasized balancing the mind, body, and spirit.
Her career as an acupuncturist began at Lokahi Acupuncture in San Jose where she worked with fertility patients. Neda loves supporting women and men in achieving optimal health and producing beautiful babies. It is her greatest joy to help couples conceive and provide care as a new life develops. In 2014, Neda started her private practice, Evoke Acupuncture.
Neda is also trained as a Crisis Talkline Counselor. She excels at comforting, supporting, and giving strength to patients during challenging times. She is fluent in Farsi and Spanish and hopes to make acupuncture accessible and available to as many people as possible.
